Seems I got virus on my desktop , and I need help getting it removed.
While on computer using IE or Mozilla Firefox, I get redirected to the link below which is the most common of re-directions:
I know nothing about this site, nor have I ever visited it (willingly).
It says it's powered by Google.
Someone mentioned to me that they checked out SEARCH.CONDUIT (which is included in the link above) and that it is some form of hijacker.
My computer has all the symptoms of an attack by search.conduit

I ran AVAST virus scan (which found nothing), and then I ran MALWAREBYTES ANTI-MALWARE (which nothing showed). First time MALWAREBYTES removed around 6 - 10 infected files but since everytime I run it says no issues found. But I am sure my desktop is under attack.

And also due to which my PC running DAM slow.
Would you please take a look?
